TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / May 13, 2021 / Graycliff Exploration Limited (the "Company" or "Graycliff") (CSE:GRAY)(OTCQB:GRYCF)(FSE:GE0) is pleased to announce that has acquired an additional 68 mining claims comprising approximately 1,500 hectares (the "Baldwin Project") adjacent to the Company's Shakespeare Gold Project located on the prolific Canadian Shield near Sudbury, Ontario. Graycliff also staked an additional 13 claims, comprising 80 hectares, that abut the Shakespeare Project. The total property package now comprises 2,525 hectares with both projects.
The Baldwin Project is comprised of three mining blocks totalling 68 mining claims (see Figure 1), which are located to the east of the Shakespeare project property boundaries. The Baldwin Project, in black, doubles Graycliff's exposure in the vicinity of the Murry Fault and covers a major splay of the Murray Fault. Initial due diligence suggests that both projects share similar geological features that the Company's technical team identified during its first two drill programs at the Shakespeare Gold Project.
"The Baldwin Project was historically explored for uranium and nickel, given its proximity to the prolific Sudbury Nickel Belt and known uranium occurrences in the area. It appears that there has been virtually no gold exploration carried out on the Baldwin Project, however there are striking similarities to the Shakespeare geology and structure including indications of intense deformation and faulting. We view this as blue-sky upside for the Company, as we now have two exciting gold projects to explore", stated James Macintosh, President and CEO.
